The Thames School of Mines was established in 1886. The complex is particularly significant for its links with science and technology, still containing a large amount of equipment related to the development and teaching of mining and extraction techniques. Its well-preserved interiors demonstrate the use and appearance of educational structures prior to the twentieth century. The school was closed in 1954. Source; Web. Te Ara. NZ Museums.
